Guns and consciousness
In memory of victims of the elementary school massacre
What is wrong with us
Fallen in love with our guns?
Obsessed with an outdated right
“Of the people to bear arms”
“A well regulated Militia to secure a free state.”
Constitution was written two centuries ago
Is that why we worship guns?
When was the last time
People deterred the tyranny of their government
Formed Militia with guns in their hands?
Are guns legal for hunting?
How many rounds of ammunition
Discharged from a semi-automatic gun are needed
For a prancing deer to fall and die?
It’s not about security, liberty or constitution
Violence is engraved in our psyche
Villains are praised, mobs admired,
The vicious games and Hollywood crap,
The Pup Culture is to blame.
Gun manufacturers are profiteers
Filmmakers, song writers too
Politicians with strings attached
Coconspirators in gun related crimes.
How come no one in corporate media
Dares to rise above the fray
Ask the hard question
Why so much bloodshed in the name of freedom?
Morality of a nation is on verge of collapse.
Add to this shenanigan a broken mental health
Scarce budget for needed care
20 percent of population affected yet ignored every day.
Dystopia is in the making, stage is set
For an anti-hero, a Joker of the sort
Demented villain, fully armed
A lethal blend of delusion and bullets
Snaps into action to take charge
In a matter of minutes
Tragedy in sight, carnage everywhere.
Blood of children, stain on conscience
Fallen angels wallowed in vain.
